Radiographic and Surgical Templates

Radiographic and surgical templates play an important role in a prosthodontically determined approach to implant therapy. Both in the planning phase and during the subsequent placement, they assist confirmation of the correct three-dimensional implant position. This Learning Pathway discusses the indications, requirements, and types of radiographic and surgical templates together with their clinical relevance and value for success of prosthodontic outcomes. The Learning Pathway comprises a Learning Module, three Lectures, a Consensus Statement, and a variety of Clinical Case examples.

On completion of this Learning Pathway you should be able to:

  • recognize indications for radiographic and surgical templates
  • outline requirements to their design and construction
  • critique different template types
  • discuss the relevance and value of templates for the implant treatment outcome
